Egg Rolling

Egg Rolling is an easter tradition. In the US, there is an egg roll played at the White House every Easter, where the Egg Roll is a race - children push an egg through the grass with a long-handled spoon.

In England, it is known as "pace-egging". The main event is at Avenham Park in Preston, Lancashire, where children roll hard boiled and decorated eggs down a hill - the winner is egg which rolls the furthest without cracking.
